All hospitals have doctors / obstetricians who can share some of the care for women who are seen in fetal medicine. The Royal Victoria Infirmary (RVI) at Newcastle has a specific fetal medicine department that covers the most complex pregnancies where fetal medicine involvement is required. For some women their care will be centred at the RVI because of their baby’s needs. All the hospitals in the region work together to support mothers and babies with complex illnesses.
